Corn harvest nears in eastern Iowa

An eastern Iowa farmer says he’s eager to start corn harvest, but it is still a couple of weeks away.

Lance Lillibridge says his part of the state hasn’t been as dry as others. “We’re still pretty green,” he said. “We’ve been blessed with some pretty decent rainfalls this year. We are not seeing any movement around this neck of the woods right now.”

He tells Brownfield he’s optimistic about this year’s crop, but… “It’s really hard to say until that combine rolls,” he said.
